video, now, they are trying to blame the romney/ryan ticket for making this an issue. with respect to iraq, we had the same position before the withdrawal, which was, we agreed with the obama administration, let's have an agreement to make sure we secure our gain. the vice president was put in charge of those negotiations by president obama. and they failed to get the agreement. we don't have an agreement because they failed to get one. that's what we were talking about. when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau. but we also want to make sure that we don't lose the things we fought to hard to get. and with respect to afghanistan, the 2014 deadline, we agree with a 2014 transition. we want to make sure we're not projecting weakness abroad. that's what's happening here. this benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately, it's indicative of a broader problem. and that is, what we are watching on our tv screens is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. which is making the worl
